This usual timespan for this process occurs between the ages of 45 and 55 – which means most women can expect some 30 years of post-menopausal life. For some this is even longer as early menopause occurs in approx 5% of women before age 40 or may have been precipitated by surgery such as a hysterectomy.
The significant hormonal changes that hijack the body at this point can cause profound changes in a women’s health and lead to side effects that interrupt your normal lifestyle such as:
physical aches and pains
reduction in bone density
strength and balance
insomnia and depressed mood
pelvic floor muscle weakness
urinary and faecal incontinence
pelvic organ prolapse
Fortunately we understand more about how these symptom not only impact on quality of life but we have solutions to combat them. We work closely with GP’s, Gynaecologists, personal trainers, clinical psychologists and nutritionists to ensure you are as prepared as possible before you hit the menopause, and progress through this stage in life feeling in control!
